  • Description


    Hello everyone!
    I started homestay four years ago in a small village of Ban Tuy, 300 km from Ha Noi, 3 km north of Ha Giang City. Many population (Tay, Dao,) are living here and in the mountains around the beauty (we are in the mountains).
    The Ly family, as well as the local residents are very friendly and will provide you with an amazing experience and some wonderful memories of your trip to Vietnam.
    There are around 600 residents in Ban Tuy village, who are all of an Ethnic Minority Peoples called Tay. The locals all follow their traditional culture.
    The Homestay is owned by my family, who invite people from all over the world into their home to experience true Tay/Vietnamese culture.
    I invite you to stay here with me and my family to help with the lodge, ensure that it works smoothly by working daily and advising me where improvements can be made. It would also be great if you have social media / website skills to keep things beautiful. I offer free food for your help.
    I would ideally like to welcome volunteers who are committed to helping the hmestay operate to its best potential while at the same time making sure it keeps its local feel, and that the local enviroment, culture and people are respected and protected. Hopefully you will be able to stay for one month, but shorter visits are ok too.
    Spending time here is worth it as you have time to really discover the north-Vietnam culture.
    I hope to hear from you soon.
    Please only message us if you are serious about helping us. As we understand your plans may change on the road we would really appreciate the help.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Ban Tuy village is still not really visited by tourists, it is still a really authentic village. So the first and largest cultural exchange that you will benefit is about the locals. There are two main ethnic groups represented here and they live in rice paddies, maize etc and pets. In your spare time, you can walk around Ban Tuy village and meet people who welcome you with a smile: the perfect opportunity to learn about their culture, lifestyle, history, language. .
    Finally, living with me and my Tay family, you will be immersed in the daily life of the Vietnamese. Where most people only stay one night, you will have a unique opportunity to experience the Vietnamese.

    This is a small and only a few tourists come here when the famous Ha Giang. Because some yoga has helped you to add maps to this map, we are welcoming more customers.
    Now I need two friendly, mature and flexible people to ensure that the lodge runs smoothly. Business computer / business / online / social activities will be very helpful if you have the skills.
